Low Carb Garlic and Olive Alfredo Recipe

Pasta is often missed on a low carb diet; however, there are delicious keto alternatives to noodles at your disposal on the keto diet. Zoodles or zucchini noodles is probably the most easily accessible substitute for pasta. This recipe uses zucchini noodles for the keto pasta. They are covered in a creamy garlicky sauce with chunks of green olive. The combination of the green olives and garlic in this tradtional alfredo sauce creates a unique dish that is droolworthy and easy to make. It’s the ideal keto lunch – quick, easy, and tasty.

Low Carb Noodle Options

As mentioned before there are options for noodle replacments on the keto diet. The two most common low carb noodles used are zucchini noodles, also known as “zoodles”, and shirataki noodles. You can use either type of keto pasta in this recipe. Both are easy to make and delicious with the creamy garlic and green olive alfredo sauce.

Zucchini noodles do come already spiralized or you can spiralize a whole zucchini squash yourself. Depending on how big your zucchini is, it will probably take 2-3 zucchini to yield 6 cups of spiralized zoodles. My favorite spiralizer is this one by Paderno. It has different blade sizes to spiralize many different types of vegetables.

shirataki noodles
Shirataki noodles are another popular keto noodle substitute. They are made from the konjac yam and contain mostly water and glucomannan, a water soluble fiber. Shirataki noodles are ZERO carb, unlike zoodles, which do have carbohydrates.

If you prepare them correctly according to the package directios, shirataki noodles don’t have much flavor so they will take up the flavor of the dish they are made with.

The brand of shirataki noodles that I prefer are made by Miracle Noodle. Miracle Noodle has different pasta and noodle shapes so you can choose your favorite pasta shape for your recipe needs. This recipe is delicious with either their fettucine noodle or the Garlic & Herb flavored noodles. Two bags of Miracle Noodle fettuccini will be needed to make this keto lunch recipe.

This creamy keto alfredo sauce starts with an egg yolk and heavy cream. The two are mixed together, then slowly poured into the skillet with the garlic butter. The yolk and cream mixture are whisked at they hit the hot skillet which helps to thicken the sauce. Once the sauce thickens, grated parmesan cheese is added which further thickens the low carb alfredo sauce. Finally green olives are added to give the alfredo sauce a bit of a bittery bite, but in a good way!

  1. Beginner’s question – are the nutritional totals for each of the 6 servings, or for the whole dish?
